Rodent tumorigenicity experiments are conducted to determine whether a particular substance accelerates tumour development. The association between exposure to this substance and the risk of tumour development can be ...
In a study of 133 volunteer subjects, demographic, physiologic and pharmacokinetic data through exposure to 1,3-Butadiene (BD) were collected in order to estimate the percentage of BD concentration metabolized at steady ...
The objective of measuring leaf photosynthesis using infrared gas analysis is to determine key indicators of plant eco-physiology, including light and CO2 compensation and saturation points, and critical thresholds of ...
Estimation of copula models with discrete margins can be difficult beyond the bivariate case. We show how this can be achieved by augmenting the likelihood with continuous latent variables, and computing inference using ...
Mesh networks with an autonomous channel assignment can be used as a viable cost-effective alternative for a last mile broadband access. The channel assignment algorithm in mesh networks should be capable of reducing the ...
Penalised-spline-based additive models allow a simple mixed model representation where the variance components control departures from linear models. The smoothing parameter is the ratio of the random-coefficient and error ...
This article extends the exchange option model of Margrabe, where the distributions of both stock prices are log-normal with correlated Wiener components, to allow the underlying assets to be driven by jump-diffusion ...

A gate is called entangler if it transforms some (pure) product states to entangled states. A universal entangler is a gate which transforms all product states to entangled states. In practice, a universal entangler is a ...
Variational approximations facilitate approximate inference for the parameters in complex statistical models and provide fast, deterministic alternatives to Monte Carlo methods. However, much of the contemporary literature ...
We give explicit upper bounds for convergence rates when approximating both one- and two-sided general curvilinear boundary crossing probabilities for the Wiener process by similar probabilities for close boundaries of ...

Two areas of research longitudinal data analysis and kernel machines have large, but mostly distinct, literatures. This article shows explicitly that both fields have much in common with each other. In particular, many ...
Objectives-The association between birth weight and exposure to benzene, work stress, and other occupational and environmental hazards was investigated. Methods-in a large petrochemical industry, 792 pregnant workers were ...
We looked for an association between early exposure to pets and asthma and wheezing in children whose mothers or fathers did or did not have a history of asthma. We followed up 448 children, who had at least one parent ...
Background: There has been no longitudinal study of the relation between concurrent exposure to dust mite allergen and endotoxin in early life and asthma and atopy at school age. Objectives: To examine the relation between ...

In 1987 Knopfmacher and Knopfmacher published new infinite product expansions for real numbers 0 < A < 1 and A > 1. They called these expansions Engel product expansions. At that time they had difficulty finding rational ...
We investigate the extension of binning methodology to fast computation of several auxiliary quantities that arise in local polynomial smoothing. Examples include degrees of freedom measures, cross-validation functions, ...
